We Recycle All Beverage Containers

Reduce the Waste, Reuse what you can, Recycle what you can't

When you place a beverage container in a recycling bin, you are an important part of the product’s life cycle, helping that packaging to be used to make something new, over and over again. Plus you get your deposit paid back into your pocket! By recycling your used beverage containers, you divert waste from your local landfills and help the environment. You also reduce the need for raw materials to manufacture new products.

What happens to it?

 

Aluminum Cans – Cans end up back on the shelf as new cans within six weeks! It takes 95% less energy to manufacture a can from recycled aluminum than it does to make it from brand new material.

Plastic Bottles –  These are turned into new bottles and buckets using about a third less energy than manufacturing new plastic.

Glass – This is used in the manufacturing of a variety of things such as fibreglass insulation and sandblasting material.

Other Metal Cans – Non-aluminum cans (usually steel) can be made into hundreds of products such as rebar and car parts.

Drink Boxes and Cartons – Polycoat containers are hydra-pulped and turned into tissue paper and cardboard boxes.

 

Refillable Glass Bottles – The industry standard refillable beer bottle is reused an average of 15 times and is used by a collective of brewers across the province and country.  At the end of the bottle’s life cycle, it is crushed and recycled into new glass bottles.
